Most reliable and conscientious House Sitter ever!

71, Retired

I love to house sit as it gives me the opportunity to travel and to experience living in other communities. I've been retired now for 9 years and have lived in Nicaragua, travelled to South America , Europe, Indonesia and South East Asia. I am a single woman but very comfortable with solo travel. I enjoy being around cats and dogs, they make the best companions! I

Before retiring I worked as a Contracts Advisor for major Oil Companies such as Shell Canada and Talisman Energy. I raised two very successful children as a single mother and I am very proud of my accomplishments. I love a clean and tidy home, I am a non smoker and prefer a smoke free home for my sits. If there are house plants to care for even better for I love to care for them as well.

I have references attached for your convenience, as well as a police report for your peace of mind. For my comfort of feeling at home, I prefer long term sits of 2 to 6 months.

I look forward to hearing from you to discuss the care of your home and pets.

Best Regards

Colette is a gem! She stayed in my house for close to 3 months and I came home to a sparkling clean house with all kinds of extras. She shoveled snow, she engaged with neighbours and kept in touch with me regularly. She is a warm, kind soul and I would (will!) have her housesit for me again without hesitation. Colette is a gem!

I can’t recommend Collette highly enough. We started with excellent communication and great questions that made me feel confident and comfortable leaving my older dog in her care. I received frequent updates and photos during her stay. I returned to a very clean home Rating 10/10

Colette did a great house sit for us. Her communication was great in the run up. She was totally reliable and when she arrived very relaxed and capable. Colette looked after both the house and dog beautifully and also kept us up to date with messages and pictures. I would have no hesitation in recommending Colette for house sitting. Thank you!

Colette looked after our house & old cat for two & a half months & did a wonderful job. She sent us updates & photos of our mail, phone msgs & of course our cat. When we arrived home Colette had vacated & our house was spotless. What a treat after flying for 16.5 hrs and being worn out. We would not hesitate to ask Colette for any future housesitting. Great service, great person!

Only one word to describe Colette. Amazing!!!! Would highly recommend Colette. A pet lover at heart....great communication and our home was lovingly looked after. Thank you Colette for making our vacation worry free. I was going to leave a terrible review so we could have her all to Of course that would not be fair. Do not hesitate to let Colette into your home. A truly wonderful soul. Well that was more than one word but truly well deserved.

What a pleasure it was to have Colette in our home taking care of our dog and the house. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We will have her back again. Thanks ever so much Colette!

Thank you kindly Charlene, it was truly a pleasure for me as well. Gizmo is a sweetie !
Amazing! This was our first experience with Housesitters, and we are more than impressed. Colette is extremely respectful, communicates well, and provided our three cats with amazing care. (In fact, I think they now prefer her over us?) We were very comfortable with her overseeing our place. She treated our home as her home - very well cared for and she has set the bar on excellence. We were blessed to have her for such an extended stay!
NADINE ( Alberta, Dec 2021 - 5 months)
Colette was a great house sitter. We cannot say enough about how well she looked after our place. During Colette's stay at our home we were selling the house, this can be a stressful time for anyone with short notice viewings and the like. The house sold in a large part due to how well it showed . Our realtor was very impressed with the cleanliness and flexibility in showing. Neighbours formed lasting friendships and were sad to see her leave. Thank you Colette we will keep in touch,
KEVIN ( Alberta, May 2021 - 5 months)
Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure taking care of your home for you. You were both so kind and helpful. I appreciate it! Would always be available to housesit for you again.
We have so many good things to say about Colette we don't even know where to start! She was incredibly professional and treated our home like it was her own, I don't know how it's possible but I think it looks better now then when we left. Colette followed through on every single thing we asked her to do, had amazing communication the whole time we were away, dealt with some minor house repairs and just blew us away overall. She would be our first choice if we ever go away again and we ... MORE

No rating Colette was a great sitter. She traveled right across the country to care for our cat for six weeks. As soon as we left home we had a problem of our own creation - important cards left behind. In no time at all she arranged expedited delivery and resolved a difficult situation. Colette was a good communicator, both during the process of arranging the housesit and while we were away. She gave us updates on our kitty and reassured us that all was well at home. She experienced the worst ... MORE

No rating This is the first time my husband and I used Canada House Sitters Canada, as we usually have found pet/house sitters through family contacts, so we wondered how using a service would suit us. We are very pleased with the service and the ability to find Colette there. Colette has been wonderful from the beginning and we feel like we have a new friend. Communication with Colette was always prompt. We were away for three months so we appreciated the photos and updates about our cats on a regular ... MORE

No rating We have just returned from our extended vacation with Colette looking after our house and our two precious cats. We can confidently say that this was one of our best sitters ever. Usually, we have found our sitter by word of mouth, but this year we used this service and we fortunate to find Colette. When we contacted her 'mid-sit' to see if we could extend our stay, she quickly assured us it was okay with her. When we returned, the house was immaculate and the cats were so clearly happy and ...
